About the Movie
Cambodia is a nation split between the brightest future and the blackest past. On one hand still tending the savage wounds wrought upon its people by the Khmer Rouge and the USA bombers before them, whilst also cultivating a vibrant and optimistic new generation. This deep and incisive portrait of a vibrant, bustling country moves beyond the verdant hills, ancient antiquities and modern metropolises to reveal a past of violence and pain which still lingers not to far below the surface...

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: The graphic evidence here, in testimony on camera and in period photographs, is absolutely harrowing.
Fresh: "Angkor Awakens" won't wow you with artfulness, but as an analytical narrative of tragedy, testimony and a way ahead, it has an undeniable power.
Fresh: A no-frills primer on the history and prospects of a troubled nation.
Fresh: A superbly balanced picture of Cambodia then and now, a nation in a sort of stupor of post traumatic stress syndrome, denial and survivor's' guilt.
